The Rocky Mountains are an absolute treat and with so much to see and do you’re bound to work up an appetite.

From fine dining experiences to adorable cafes, there are several spots to grab a drink or bite to eat, but few are as iconic as the Rose and Crown on Banff Ave.

Established in 1985, this particular spot is actually the town’s oldest and most beloved pub – for good reason.

Here, you can treat yourself to an $8 Coronas, a $5 shot of Jäger or Jose Cuervo, $5 Pabst tall boys every or a $7 Maker’s Mark on the rooftop patio (if it’s nice), in addition to a solid lineup of rotating goodies 7 days a week.

Hungry? They also serve one of the most extravagant drinks in the area, a $30 colossal caesar garnished with beef slider and chicken sliders, candied pork belly wrapped scallops and an onion ring.

If, of course, you’re in the mood for a proper dinner, you can order everything from burgers and salads to pizza and steak, which you can eat while enjoying live music.

Not only do they feature local bands and up-and-coming artists, but they’ve also hosted bigger names like Paul Brandt in 2018.

The very best part though? Knowing that you have a shared experience with the 250,000 other people who visit the spot every year.

It really has become a Banff staple, so check it out and enjoy! You’re going to have a blast.
